The Pie Tin, Newtown

The Pie Tin, Newtown

Tim Tams are an Australian classic like me taking a girl out to dinner to have her tell me we're great friends.

Scout’s Honour (Redfern)

I finished dinner five minutes ago yet I'm salivating. That's just a murderer's row of quality ingredients all under the one roof. It's like the cast of Love Actually.
Three Williams (Redfern)

Three Williams (Redfern)

My co-workers visited Three Williams in the morning and told me that the coffee was pretty amazing. Due to the fact that I have trust issues built up over years of lies from my parents (I'm still recovering from Santa being just some dude with a fake beard), I had...

Its not listed in the recipes you find online, but greatness is key to this dessert.

Imagine if someone had told you that 'The Dark Knight' was just an okay movie. Pieces of my brain would still be scattered across the cinema floor if someone had managed to lower my expectations for the movie I watch every Valentine's Day (yes, Batman is my valentine. I'm pretty...
Shake Shack, New York

Shake Shack, New York

Shake Shack should be a national heritage site. It should be placed on all 'places to visit' brochures of every city fortunate enough to boast one of (if not the best) burger franchises in the Milky Way. Am I being hyperbolic? Hell, I might be underselling the greatest burger experience...

Spoiler alert: We had two dessert courses because...just because, okay?

There is nothing wrong with having high expectations, that just means you have high standards and that you're not willing to settle for anything less than a superb crab po boy.
Chur Burger, Surry Hills (Katy Perry Edition)

Chur Burger, Surry Hills (Katy Perry Edition)

The pork belly burger had my heart racing in my skin tight jeans and it'll definitely be in my teenage dreams tonight.
The Choc Pot, Burwood

The Choc Pot, Burwood

One more time for dramatic effect; this might be the best tea I've ever had. The scent of passionfruit seduced me completely and the staff at the Choc Pot was really confused as to why I was suddenly topless in public view.
Chanoma Cafe, CBD

Chanoma Cafe, CBD

The level of cheese on this hot dog was the equivalent of how cheesy I am towards girls I like. From a distance you think it's way too much but observe it from up close you know that it means well and that I taste good. That sounded really weird. I'm...
Ippudo Sydney, CBD

Ippudo Sydney, CBD

Do you remember your first kiss? I do. It was in a game of truth or dare and it was with a girl I didn't really like. There were half a dozen pre-pubescents watching me as I closed my eyes at the last second. Is it possible to ever recreate...
Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine, Chinatown

Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine, Chinatown

Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine might feature some of the most photogenic dishes in Sydney. I just couldn't believe how magnificent a sight the dumplings made encased in their bird's next container.
Sushi Hotaru, Town Hall

Sushi Hotaru, Town Hall

Eel sushi is my favourite. Whoever figured out that cream cheese and eel are best friends deserves whatever they want in life. My two eel topped morsels were quite large and topped with deep fried crisps. I ate these two so fast that the flavours barely registered. When they did,...
Jazz City Milk Bar, Darlinghurst

Jazz City Milk Bar, Darlinghurst

Both were very good by themselves, but combined in one bite with a slight dip into maple syrup? Scrumptous. Something about all the different flavours and textures working in harmony created the most fantastic food party in my mouth.
Taste of Shanghai, Ashfield

Taste of Shanghai, Ashfield

I gasped slightly when this was placed on our table. The fish looked so intimidating and yet it was bathed in sweet and sour sauce. It reminded me of the scene in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban when Neville imagined Professor Snape in his grandmother's clothing.

Jealousy and I have never really made each other’s acquaintance. In a past life when I was actually dating people, I never minded if my girlfriend would hang out with her male friends or whatever. This was mainly due to my past self’s supreme confidence. In my mind, if you were dating me, I knew...

Brooklyn Social, Surry Hills

I have a lot of bad habits in my everyday life. I check my phone when I’m on dates (jokes, I don’t go on dates), I annoyingly readjust my hair and make it look worse, I laugh obnoxiously loudly at my own jokes and I call almost everyone I know ‘dude.’ Dude, it’s just who...
Coffee Tea & Me, Redfern

Coffee Tea & Me, Redfern

Coffee Tea and Me is a tiny cafe that you can completely miss even if you know exactly where it is. It just blends into its surroundings so well. It's like trying to spot me in an engineering lecture hall when you only have a vague idea as to what I actually look like.

Momofuku Seiobo, Pyrmont (Part II)

I just let sit on my tongue as I thought about my life and wondered why Justin Timberlake didn't give his 'N Sync bandmates more time to perform at the MTV Music Awards last year.
Momofuku Seiobo, Pyrmont (Part I)

Momofuku Seiobo, Pyrmont (Part I)

It's like any dinner party that has the host saying iFat will not be attending (I'm bad at dinner parties because I insist on taking photos of everything and making every non-food blogger wanting to stab me with chopsticks).
Milk Bar by Cafe Ish (Redfern)

Milk Bar by Cafe Ish (Redfern)

I was talking to a buddy of mine a while ago about the weirdest couple names she’s ever heard of/used herself. She didn’t say anything too outlandish (wax candle was my favourite; who calls their significant other: ‘wax candle?). She then asked me the same question and I was stumped. Except for some weird lapses...

The soup encased in the dumplings was piping hot, tasty and resulted in the four of us drinking from our bowls like James Franco drinking water after being rescued in 127 Hours.

Thanks to the kind folk over at Chi & Co, I have a $50 voucher to give away to one lucky reader. In order to win, simply come up with the best Vietnamese food pun you can and the voucher is yours. Make sure it's original or I'll put you on blast pho real.

I came here with one of my vegetarian friends and she was incredibly excited. She was behaving the same way I would if I was granted backstage access to a Victoria's Secret fashion show. She was just happy that she could select anything on the menu and not restricted to a section tinier than Jabba...

Bentley Restaurant and Bar, CBD

I seem to be using synonyms for unprecedented a lot throughout this blog but everything on offer was completely new to me. Aerated chocolate was another unfamiliar sensation and one I would love to get very familiar with if you catch my drift.

I've done a lot of stupid things over the years. A lot of them are because I'm an idiot.

My mind was fantasising about dates involving serenading, dancing and pignics with this slice of pork. I have weird thoughts.
